This is great recipe that I have used when we are on vacation or camping! It is so easy to do! Just chop or slice your meat and veggies the day before to make the morning preparation a snap. Our kids absolutely loved this. Creating their very own omelet in the ziploc baggie was so fun!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This terrific technique is a real winner and has been used my clever campers for years. I sure had never tried it before seeing this recipe, though, and now I want to throw an omelet party! Everyone can prepare their own creation, and each omelet will finish cooking at the same time so you can all enjoy breakfast together! Love it.

Ingredients

1 pkg
1 quart size ziploc freezer baggie per person (freezer style bag is important)
2
eggs per person per baggie
1/4 c
cheese your choice (american, cheddar, etc.)
1/4 c
meat your choice (ham, bacon, etc.)
1/4 c
veggies (onions, green/red peppers, hashbrowns, etc.)
1/4 c
sauce or salsa (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Write your name with a permanent marker on your quart freezer Ziploc bag. Start a pot or dutch oven of boiling water on your stove or campfire.
2Crack two eggs into your baggie. Close up. Mix and mash your eggs until blended well.
3Now add your own special ingredient (cheese, meat, veggies, sauce, salsa, etc.) to your omelet mix.
4Close baggie again and mix very well. Holding bag upright, squeeze all air out of the baggie making sure to seal completely.
5Place bags upright in the pot or dutch oven of boiling water for 13 minutes exactly. Remember to time it. You can usually fit up to 8 omelets in one pot.
6Do not cover the pot. Use tongs to keep bags upright and side by side. When 13 minutes is up, carefully remove steaming bags to a heat safe dish.
7Carefully cut the tops off of the bags and with an oven mitt, hold the bottom corners so that the omelet will "slide" right out of the bag and onto your plate!
8Finally add any salt, pepper, condiments, sauces, etc. to the top of your omelet and enjoy! Remember to be careful when eating because this will be hot!
